Ok, how far North do I have to move to escape the humidity? I am in the carolina region now and I am suffocating here. Do I need to move to the Owensboro, Louisville area of KY to get relief? Or do I need to go up into the Covington area. I don't mind the colder weather as long as it is not bitter cold, or below zero.......Please help!

I guess you need to go north of the humid subtropical climate. Apparently, Louisville is at the northern limit and I imagine that Northern KY is probably like that too. You probably need to go farther north than us to escape it.

Humid subtropical climate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I just walked 1 minute to the cleaners and went to my car to get a few things and I am soaked in sweat...it is soooo humid! But I think it is like this everywhere, my MIL is in N. Jersey and she said it was the same there.

You know I really think you build up a tolerance for the humidity to some degree. If you aren't used to humidity and heat, then it can be overwhelming...you just need to learn to move slower, drink more water, go out in the early morning and evening for your exercise and errands and enjoy the wonderful air conditioning that you find almost everywhere. The humidity is one of the reasons everything is so lushly green and it is good for your skin :-).

I don't think it's a matter of "North" . . . it's a matter of overall environment. Heck, you could even go south (like west Texas, Arizona, etc) and be warm but not humid. If you want cooler and less humid summers, go out to the Seattle area (but then you have the fall/winter/spring rain) or the rocky mountain states/Utah . . . If you're planning on being in KY, though, I'd say forget it . . . you are doomed to stickiness for the rest of your life!
